The mechanical inclusion of a watermark is not grounds for a new claim of copyright, but the logo itself could have a trademark applied. Using the underlying public domain work and removing the watermark (blacking it out, blurring it, reframing to conceal it) would not be an infringement of that trademark or copyright logo.

The companies that do this rarely do anything to significantly alter the works they use, beyond copying it off someone elses video or dvd. If they ever do register copyright it is on a "compilation of films" or "repackaging of films."

You must really enjoy denying the public. What's it like to be a natural-born a$$hole? Is your daddy one too?

How exactly is providing instructions on a legal way to circumvent an attempt to gain copyright on a public domain work "denying the public"?

From your comment, it's no surprise that you can't comprehend what you've read.

It is a surprise, however, that migre has the knowledge to use a computer well enough to post remarks like that. I think I saw a sci-fi movie about a guy like this once. I think it was called "T'RD, THE THING FROM URANUS".
